Members of the MOMS (Ministry of Mothers Sharing) ministry of St. Barnabas Parish in Indianapolis launched an effort to create an outdoor Stations of the Cross path in Indianapolis’ Hill Valley neighborhood near the parish.  

Catholic families from the Indianapolis parishes of St. Barnabas, St. John the Evangelist, St. Jude, St. Mark the Evangelist and St. Roch who live in the neighborhood were recruited to either create, host, or both create and host the stations to form a 2.5-mile path.  

“People have been coming through walking, driving or biking,” said Rachel Miller, a member of St. Barnabas Parish. “For our family, this has already been the perfect lesson on the different Stations of the Cross. We are able to stop and reflect and ask each other questions.” †
